Sorrento

Overview

The Neapolitan Riviera is Italy's most spectacular stretch of coastline and starts in Sorrento – a bustling town with lively bars and restaurants as well as a scenic beauty with dramatic views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Head further south and you'll find the iconic towns of the Amalfi Coast.

Sorrento itself, overlooks the Bay of Naples, offering cinematic views across the water to Mount Vesuvius. The old quarter of Sorrento is a warren of narrow streets lined with limoncello boutiques and hole-in-the-wall cobblers (handmade sandals are something of a speciality here). Antiques can be found at the Teodoro Del Giudice, while the weekly market is the place to pick up everything from jackets to handbags. The streets of Sorrento really come alive on summer nights, when locals fill the café and restaurant terraces around the pretty main square, For a seafood supper, head down to Marina Grande, where you'll find a collection of waterside fish restaurants.
It’s got great links to some of the top sights in Italy, thanks to ferry routes to Capri and Ischia, a panoramic road to the Amalfi Coast, and fast rail connections to Pompeii and Naples.
